#StopTPP - The only thing that be should fast track through #congress is our capacity to produce clean energy. Not some shady trade deal that empowers multi-national corporations through rigged tribunal that allows the same multi-national corporations to sue different governments for taking climate action with regulations. 👍👍

Repost from @letsraiseawareness Where would we be without bees? As far as important species go, they are top of the list. They are critical pollinators: they pollinate 70 of the around 100 crop species that feed 90% of the world. Honey bees are responsible for $30 billion a year in crops.
That’s only the start. We may lose all the plants that bees pollinate, all of the animals that eat those plants and so on up the food chain. Which means a world without bees could struggle to sustain the global human population of 7 billion. Our supermarkets would have half the amount of fruit and vegetables.
It gets worse. We are losing bees at an alarming rate. Possible reasons include the loss of flower meadows, the crab-like varroa mite that feasts on their blood, climate change, and use of pesticides.

Recycled

Look around you
We’ve all been
Reduced
Reused
It’s all part of the cycle
Right?

And let’s assume
Let’s presume
We are the exhumed
The consumed
Not the consumers

They’ll find what’s left
Of our useable parts
Maybe pluck out our hearts
Create a new start.

See, we can be
Recycled, too.
